    Lap quilt - opinions

    I made this quilt top this weekend added the two borders tonight. I am thinking about adding a green border from the main fabric in the quilt what do you think? The blocks are TD9 and a version of TD9

    Beautiful Quilt. I like it just the way it is. Personally I can't see where green borders would enhance the quilt, but I might change my mind if I saw it laid out that way. Either way I am sure it will be beautiful. Lovely work.

    I would add a border of one of the darker colors in the last border if it were mine. You have enough green.
    Think of it as putting a picture into a frame. Your picture frames aren't color-coded to your pictures and sometimes your borders look better if you don't match them to the center fabric, but match border to border.

    Maybe a thin border of green then another color? It's a beautiful quilt! Don't know what TD9 is but I like it!!

    I agree with TanyaL that it needs another border. In the picture, the border looks too small for the quilt as it is. I do love your colors and think the quilt looks great.

    If you add another border I would go for darker rather than ending with the light green. Maybe as has already been suggested a thin border of the green, then the background color of your print.

    I personally would leave it the way it is! Very pretty quilt!
